Soldiers For Wildlife will be partnering with Dogs 4 Wildlife to create a canine unit to work alongside our team. This team will be integrated for both daily patrols and a quick reaction force in the events of security breaches. Dogs 4 wildlife and Soldiers For Wildlife share very similar values and are extremely excited to move forward.
By sponsoring a puppy, you will be providing one of our four puppies with their veterinarian bills, every day training costs, gear, and food bills all the way to deployment which will be in the second quarter of 2021. The skillset and training of these dogs doesn’t come cheap. They are carefully selected and trained specifically for this purpose every single day.
We would be humbled to sign on sponsors to help us move forward with this initiative.
Each canine before training costs $1,000. After almost a year of extensive training, the dog is valued at $10,000. We will be collaborating with the Dogs 4 Wildlife Team to gain the support we need to assist us in funding.
In the meantime, this is what Soldiers for Wildlife is prepared to offer in exchange for your gracious donations.
All monthly sponsors will receive regular email updates including photos and videos of the puppies and their journeys.

Naming your canine soldier.
Virtual meeting(s) with your canine soldier.
Private and detailed updates on your soldier’s milestones.
The opportunity to visit your canine soldier on Kyalala Conservation with complimentary stay.
With respect to our future canine soldiers, serious adoption inquiries only.
YOUR GIFT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE.
Today, the enemies we are up against are highly trained, dangerous, and often desperate. They continue to infiltrate vulnerable lands, killing both rhinos and elephants for their valuable horns and tusks. These animals are on the true brink of extinction, but it is the local rangers who YOU are supporting on the ground in southern Africa that are doing everything possible to give them hope for survival. Thank you.
